Morrissey Returns To Touring

The music legend has aired some of his solo and The Smiths favourites, which have been left out the set lists for years. 

His last leg of the 2018 US Tour commenced yesterday at The Majestic Ventura Theater in California, which was Morrissey‘s first show in six months. He cancelled some of his 2018 tour due to ‘logistical reasons’ after anti-racism protests were arranged around his gigs.

Despite Low In High School still being his latest album, the mega set list featured ‘William, It Was Really Nothing’, which has not been played since 2007. ‘Hairdresser on Fire’ also joined the set list, which was last performed in 2004. ‘Something Is Squeezing My Skull’ was also played, the first time in nine years. ‘Sunny’, the first time since 1999, ‘Is It Really So Strange?’ the first since 2009 and a whopping 18 years since ‘Break Up the Family’ was played.
